1086Most ingenious drug muleMarijuana strapped to a pigeonColombia, Bucaramanga01 January 2011In January 2011, it was reported that Columbian drug dealers had attempted to smuggle marijuana into a prison using a pigeon as a carrier. A 45-gramme (1.6-ounce) package was strapped to the pigeon and it was released in the direction of the Bucaramanga jail. The package, however, was too heavy for the bird, and it was found by police officers flapping on the ground near the prison. Inmates of the jail probably trained the bird, and they had been used previously to smuggle mobile phone SIM cards into the jail. A similar case was reported at a jail in Bosnia in 2008, but this case was confirmed by the police officers concerned.

1088First all-weather clockClepsydrafirstEgyptAs sundials were dependent on light and good weather conditions, the Egyptians created water clocks in the 15th century BC to tell the time in all conditions, 24 hours a day. Essentially the first all-weather clock, the device, known as a clepsydra (“water thief”), was a large pot that leaked water through a hole in the bottom at a steady, measurable rate. Along with sundials (including time sticks and obelisks), water clocks are the oldest means of keeping time. Monasteries in medieval Europe used water clocks with bells set to strike at hours for worship and work. Although not accurate by modern standards, the water clock represented a significant technological advance in timekeeping and was not supplanted until the arrival of the pendulum clock.In c. 1088, the Chinese astronomer Su Sung built a vast water clock for the Emperor, powered by a 3.3-m (11-ft) water wheel. The complex device featured one of the earliest escapements – the mechanism by which continuous motion is converted into the uniform “tick-tick” of a mechanical clock.

1091Largest collection of donkey-related itemsDelores DeJohnUnited States27 August 2004Delores DeJohn (USA) has 690 donkey-related items that she has collected since 1976.Back in 1976, because so many of her friends smoked cigarettes, Delores realised the need to purchase an ashtray. The criteria for the ashtray was that it had to be red to match the décor of her house. The first red one that she found was in the shape of a donkey. She realised that the donkey shape was also symbolic of the U.S Democratic Party, so she bought it. Following that, her collection began to grow.Delores’ favorite donkey is a ‘Cybis’ which was made by an American porcelain maker and is the replica of the donkey that Rose Kennedy presented to her son John F. Kennedy when he was nominated by the Democratic National Convention to be their Presidential Candidate.
